Many years ago, we spent a weekend at the home of our godparents in Pittsburgh. Their daughter is a beautiful and godly woman who loves Jesus Christ. Although she had dated several fine young gentlemen, she was quite sure of the man that she would marry.
“I’m going to marry a Boaz!”
And he said, “May you be blessed by the Lord, my daughter. You have made this last kindness greater than the first in that you have not gone after young men, whether poor or rich. And now, my daughter, do not fear. I will do for you all that you ask, for all my fellow townsmen know that you are a worthy woman.”
Ruth 3:10-11 (ESV)
Boaz was a wealthy landowner in ancient Israel. Boaz was always respectful of Ruth. Although she was an alien from Moab, Boaz elected to treat her kindly, allowing her to glean and gather food in his fields. He knew of her reputation as a virtuous woman who was loyal to her mother in law, Naomi, forsaking her own family and religion to cling to Naomi’s people and worship the One True God. At any time, Boaz could have easily taken advantage of Ruth because of his position. Even during this touching scene as Ruth lay at his feet in the middle of the night, he never wavered and protected her virtue.
Boaz was a man of strength, character, and action. His very name means fleetness. Within 24 hours after this evening encounter, he and Ruth were married. God blessed their marriage and they became the great grandparents of King David, a direct ancestor of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I pray that my daughter will be blessed with a godly man for a husband. I pray that God prepares a man who respects her virtue and never uses his position to take advantage of her. I pray that he will fall in love with her character and always defend her.
I pray that she will marry a Boaz!
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
